#OttEuropeanInvasion – London

The final stop on our Ott European Invasion tour was London!  Sadly, we lost Caroline and Steve in Barcelona.  We didn’t lose them lose them… we parted ways at the airport.  Steve – back to Boston.  Caroline – back to Switzerland.

  It was just Patty, Bill, Emily and me in London… what I like to call the Core Four.  The Original Crew.  The way it was for 7 years before Caroline was born. Yay!

Seeing as we lost our photographer, Caroline, we barely have any pictures from the trip. Sorry :(  I did take video though…
So in lieu of lots of pictures, watch this video!

This was my and Emily’s first trip to London!  When I travel, I love to try to experience it like the locals do… I am not big into all the touristy, mueseumy, sightseeing thingys.  London is FILLED with history and tradition, though, so we had to make sure to pay respect to that and take in the major sights.

Big Ben     Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace     Churchill War Rooms Museum      Westminster Abbey      Tower of London  London Eye     The British Museum

Shopping:  Harrods     Selfridges    Liberty of London    Notting Hill   Fortnum & Mason

We went to the theater one night which was so fun… We saw Book of Mormon, which was absolutely hilarious.  I am not a huge musical person and this show was AMAZING!


My Peekaboo with Big Ben




We were always on the go so we didn’t always have time for major sit down meals, BUT the food did not disappoint in London.

We always stopped to pick up cappuccinos and a treat for breakfast everyday at Carluccio’s right next to our Underground station in South Kensington.  We LOVED Carluccio’s.

The first night, we met up with our dear friend, Annie, for dinner.  She knows all the ins and outs of London!  She filled us in on all the places we should go and picked an amazing place for dinner.  J Sheekey’s Oyster Bar.


We ventured over to Notting Hill one afternoon and stumbled across Dayelesford Organic Farmshop and Cafe… we popped in for some brunch.  We loved this place.  Perfect and simple.  The poached eggs on toast with herb roasted ham and hollandaise was spot on!


We also ate at one of Jamie Oliver’s restaurants… Jamie has always been one of my favorite chefs.   There are quite a few to choose from but one of his restaurants is a MUST!


And finally, Coco Momo was my favorite lunch spot!!!  It is the restaurant at the end of the video.  They offer a little “soup and salad with Prosecco” lunch special that is quite lovely!

It was after that meal at Coco Momo that I decided that I want to move to London one day!  I truly loved it there.  Can’t wait to go back.  For more, check out Caroline’s London Post!

Now that we are FINALLY done with #OttEuropeanInvasion we can get back to the regular blogging program!!  We apologize for the delays and can’t wait to share more with you, as well as all the exciting things happenings with the store and summer on Nantucket!
